It's after midnight. My shift doesn't start until 2pm, but I have to do laundry in the morning. I'm tired but I can't sleep. After watching Keith Olbermann's Countdown, who is right now speaking to Tom Friedman who wrote "The World Is flat" and "Hot Flat and Crowded," Friedman was just earlier talking to Jon Stewart on the Daily Show. What's up with that? He's talking about Barack Obama.

Friedman has a slightly conservative bend so the media producers may think he will appeal to conservatives, an audience they lost over the last few years. But alas, the audiences are not to return so quickly to cable news, as the Internet is a much more appealing lure with all of its choices.

After this I'm going to bed, but I'll be listening to the BBC World Service on WUIS FM 91.9. BBC is on until 4am, then NPR's Morning Edition starts. I listened last night but I can't recall most of it. The sound keeps at bay the thoughts that evoke negative emotions. Waiting in the far corner like a bad smell, the "should have," "would have," and "could have" wait for the silent darkness.

Good night.
